I have a scale that is accurate to a hundredth of a gram. Wanting to know the density of regular old terramycin powder, or if anyone knows for sure, approximately how much terramycin is in one teaspoon (in terms of milligrams).

None of my animals are sick, and I already know how much to add to their drinking water when they are, so it's nothing like that. My curiosity on this matter is just me being anal, really. LOL! I like to study this stuff, and do calculations and whatnot.

Thanks. :)

After a ridiculous amount of time spent searching, this is the best I can come up with and I have no idea what it means.

Assuming that the medicine had a density of 1.0 g/mL, then the 5 mL dose would provide 5,000 mg per teaspoon. Powder density is typically much less than that of water (1.0 g/mL). Values range from 0.2 - 0.5 for fine powders. Sorry I can't be of more help, there is just no easy way to do it without weighing it to find out.

Hi angie. Thanks for your reply, and all the searching. :)

I'll check out the page. Probably not what I need, but possibly... :)

I might have found something close.

If you start with this page and find something with a close texture / weight to it you will get the grams per a teaspoon. Then make it to the hundredth…

Because angie did a bunch of looking I spent no time looking but it might help with your curiosity…

Look at the container. It's going to tell you the concentration and that's going to depend on what type of "terramycin powder" you have. For instance, teramycin scour tablets are 250mg/tablet and you'd have to weigh a tablet to find the weight... powders may be more or less. Find the info on the label and the calculations won't be too difficult after that.
